    What's the problem and solution?

    Nope, I cycled it by fish in cycle. Took 2 weeks. Okay, I'll tune it down to 8 hours. Thanks! I thought about this, but I was afraid to use Glue in the tank. Doesn't it have bad chemicals? Oh! That's perfect a string! Thank you. It's around 5ppm, maximum of 10ppm.

    Fish eating all the food!

    Sometimes, I need to keep my betta in the breeder box, to stop eating so much. But it stresses him out, so I like to do it only a little.

    Is this normal betta behavior?

    I just noticed that, because of the bloatness, he doesn't want to go up. So, if I don't give him the wafers and a lot of food, will he be active once again?

    5 Gallon Tank Kuhli loach problem

    I freeze my bloodworms into a freezer, and when they need to eat them, I get a plastic container, get some water, and put the bloodworms there, until they get soft. It takes like a minute. If you can, you want to return some fishes, or sell them. You can sell fishes here in fishlore too! Since...

    Considering adding betta to 24 gallon

    Bettas have different personality. So, it depends on what betta you get. Females are recommended for those tanks. Just in case, get a 5 gallon or more, because the betta can get aggressive. In my experience, the betta and the neon tetras are not fighting. However, when I feed the corydoras, the...

    Is this normal betta behavior?

    The neons are a little small them the betta. I used to do the mirror, but with the reflective background, I thought that was enough.

    I think this is the filter. It can be my mistake.

    Is my tank and betta alright?

    Like grac3 said, you don't need bubbler because they're labyrinth. They breathe under water and on the surface too. However, if you put too many plants, you should add the bubbler because plants need oxygen at night. If you add too much plants there's not much oxygen for the betta. Also, if...

    Betta hiding, some hemorrhaging on side of head

    I had a 5 gallon for my betta. I got a kit. I got 5 gallon aquaculture kit from Walmart. It was perfect for my betta fish. I've had good experience from aquaculture. So, 5 gallon kit aquaculture is what I recommend.
